Nope: it depends on where you're taking the measurements from.
I don't think you guys are getting Riv.
He's simply asserting that the relativistic observer must measure the properties of the Moon remotely.
Whizzing by the Moon at .9999c does not cause the Moon itself to undergo any time dilation or length contraction. Those effects are a property of the relative motion between the two FoRs.
Anyone else who wishes to stop off at the Moon (in its rest frame), while the relativistic observer is whizzing by, does not observe or experience any dilation or contraction on the Moon.
That's really all he's saying.
So, basically, he's just doing a Sybil Fawlty and stating the bleeding obvious?
With a bit of extra "stupid" thrown in: This to me is what is lost about relativity .
